Foot in mouth award
And the award goes to the 700 club President,Pat Robertson for this gem.Calling The Venezuelan President "a terrific danger" bent on exporting Communism and Islamic extremism across the Americas the Jesus lover came up this solution."If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it," Robertson told viewers on his "The 700 Club" show Monday. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war" This is insanely stupid even for Robertson who is known for making some eye brow raising comments.
Caucasian please! How does a country that's at least 95% Catholic export Islamic extremism.Seems to me they have a huge task on their hands of converting their citizens before bothering with the rest of the world.I say Mr Robertson head done gone(senile)
At least in a lucid moment he touched on the crux of the matter that was bothering him-the oil that Venezuela controls.But seriously what kind of flawed message is Mr Robertson sending here.So,we don't like some one or their politics and our recourse is to take them out? That doesn't sound like words that should be coming from a man who lives by the Ten Commandments but more like Tony Soprano or one of those Islam extremists calling for a fatwa.Jesus must be so proud.
Who tell you hom live by any Ten Commandments? Televangelists live to do one thing...make plenty money. Long as their pockets well lined they will say Jesus any amount of times on TV!
Have no use fe dem.
P.S. Thanks for the link.
Anywhoo, I must correct you there with that Tony Soprano talk. Yeah, we know the big man have he mummy issues and all, but de man is a business-man. You think he go kill Chavez when he could link up and make some cash? And you know them Venezuelan goombas looking better than any chicks from Jersey! :D
Interesting blog, by the way.
Sheesh. I'm all for free speech. However, I can't help but feel like his statement was not only in very bad form, but it was just stupid to let something like that go out on the airwaves.
I say that as a man who embraces a Faith in Christ. i don't think that embracing faith means blindly endorsing comments like what was made regarding an assasination attempt on Chavez. It makes me sad.
